In order to be eligible to appear on the final ballot, the candidate must gain 100 “likes” on the initial post in that thread

dont worry goons will upvote everyone to clutter the ballet. Unless CCP does a check for double likes its a worthless issue

Goons are the absolute villain on New Eden, and Mittens will soon dress up in a black armor. Also it's my fault if you didn't slept well this night, sorry about that, our dark side is so powerful, we sometime forget our power.

The application system is currently not functioning, we're looking into it and hope to have it resolved very shortly!

Disband the CSM forever.

These clowns claim to speak for the playerbase but are only in for the personal gain of their 0.0 alliances, so it is time to end the it. if 10,058 Goon voices cried out and were suddenly silenced.

Now I realize how this works out I'm even less of a fan of the forum pre-election than I was before.
I used to narrow my field of favourites after having read their "short" campaign message in the official list of candidates on the CSM page of the site, where the links to their campaign site/forum thread where conveniently listed. Now I will have to wade through all the possible candidates in a forum with other topics, with the risk of missing some because they have not been bumped enough.
Like it didn't take enough time to make a semi-informed opinion already.X

So, we will still be able to essentially lie, cheat and steal to get on the council? Why fashion it after the fail that is the US electoral system where money/spin > all?

Introduce an internal audit of candidates to ensure that as many "walks of life" are represented .. doesn't have to be equal in numbers, but judging from the Dec. minutes the bore-sec people have little to no idea of what goes on anywhere else in Eve.

Hell, go one step further and have 'expert panels' assembled when brainstorming the various aspects of Eve that a given CSM are 'weak' in .. Piracy for instance is an 'honourable' occupation for those who dabble and is entirely separate from the random noob gank that people not versed in it think it is (murder is not the same as extortion .. shocker!).

Let me know when you get serious about having a player council rather than just a "my bloc is bigger than your bloc" council.

Quick question, what EVE time do polls close?

I see here that its March 21st, but at 00:01? 23:59?

The only end-game content in EVE Online is the crap that makes you rage quit.
